Versatility leads the way for bridal shoe trends in 2012, with a leaning towards a bridal shoe that can be worn over-and-over again and used for a variety of occasions, not hiding in the back of a closet long after the ceremony. The new breed of wedding shoes exhibit multi-purposefulness featuring timeless details from ankle straps and platforms to a dash of daring in the form of energetic colors and modern metals. Silk, satin and lace will always have a place in wedding shoe traditions.


Shine from the top of your head to the tips of your toes by wearing wedding shoes with an elegant metallic touch. Trending for 2012 are a variety of styles from peep-toes to strappy sandals featuring sky-high metallic heels. Choose metals such as shiny silver reflecting the edge of your white gown or dazzling gold heels as the perfect complement to your wedding ensemble. Look dazzling as you walk down the aisle in smooth or textured iridescent metallic leathers featuring shimmering colors of pewter, silver or gold finishes.

 Bright and Bold

Vibrant jeweled-tone shoes are making an entrance in 2012 from exciting emeralds to peacock blues. Flash a bit of rebellion by selecting a pair of shoes that are never boring such as the signature red lipstick soles of Christian Louboutin or get funky by wearing bright bold colors, playful pastel polka-dots or animal prints. Show your Goth side and wear combat-style boots by Doc Martens or have fun in a pair of Chuck Taylor sneakers. Artistic types might want to grab some paints and decorate their own dyeable wedding shoes or applique a sentimental heirloom brooch or similar jewelry accents onto their shoes.

Ankle Straps

Encircle your ankles with the delicate femininity of ankle straps, look for pumps or sandal styles with a single wrap and buckle. Besides looking gorgeous, ankle straps offer the benefit of providing extra stability for high heel wearers. Bigger women appreciate the slimming effect ankle straps have on thicker ankles by visually providing structure and definition to the leg. Ankle straps may make diminutive women appear shorter due to an illusion of the strap cutting off at the ankle. Combine ankle straps with platforms for a solid 2012 look.


In 2012, platforms are fashion forward everywhere including the wedding ceremony. Platforms are a style of shoe distinguished by a raised platform under the foot and toe bed. Brides, look for your legs to appear elongated and slimmer while wearing platforms. Choose from a variety of heights with a recommended limit of four inches on the heel and one inch for the platform, to go any higher might be more appropriate for clubbing than marrying-in. Available in many price ranges, platforms come in many styles for every budget.

Brides seeking to make a statement often express their personal style and uniqueness in their choice of wedding attire including footwear. Choose a wedding shoe that looks best with your dress, trends come and go but your wedding picture is forever.
